Of the half a dozen screen versions, MGM's 1950 remake of the 1937 British adventure is arguably the most lavish and entertaining, deservedly winning the Oscars for cinematography and editing.

A spectacular adventure story with a smidgin of romance, King Solomon's Mines is exciting enough and adventurous enough and wholesome enough for the whole family.

Decent Films Guide

Doesn't quite fulfill its promise, in part because the title destination is too obviously a MacGuffin in which the film ultimately doesn't even feign mild interest.

Movie Metropolis

This is not your modern slam-bang action movie...but, rather, it's a pure adventure film, with an emphasis on realistic dangers and believable excitement.

It is pleasant to look at, but it no longer passes for action and adventure these days.
